The Empire of Vandresque is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 458 million Imperials are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liège. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.3%.

The powerhouse Vandresquean economy, worth 40.7 trillion couronnes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 88,771 couronnes, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, skateparks can be found in every city, and autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vandresque's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vandresque is ranked 8,592nd in the world and 555th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 9,046.6 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
